Unemployed Fred Thompson Decides to Go Back to Acting

While he failed to convince enough Americans to make him president, Republican Fred Thompson still has a shot at playing commander-in-chief. The former presidential candidate, US Senator, and (pretend) NYC district attorney plans to go back to acting.

After rumors swirled that he wanted to serve as RNC chair, Fred called his former fundraising chair this week and told him it wasn't happening. The close aide said:

He called me yesterday and said it’s not in the cards. He said he had spent the last two years of his life trying to be president and helping John McCain be president and during that time, he didn’t have much income. He has a family.

Are you sad to see Fred bow out of politics?
